  1. Beautiful, Kristen. What a gift for your friend. And for all of us who often never think of looking at our fear and allowing it to soften before us.

  2. Thanks, Fiona. Yes, sometimes such a simple act is the farthest thing from our minds.

  3. Oh! “She” is my friend, too….my dear, kindred, soul-connected friend.

    Thank you for this beautiful creation.

  5. I am floored, grateful, and humbled by this beautiful piece. Thank you, dear friend. This will accompany for the foreseeable future. For sure.

    Kristin, you are a wonder and a gift.

  6. Gail, YOU are a wonder and a gift. Your love and support are such a strength for me and I hope I can return that and more through this season.

    So much love!

  7. I wish I would have had this sketch in 2008. It is a mountain but it is also a mountain range. You get to the peaks and then hit valleys and begin another steep climb. But I have found my vista, my place to rest for now. I hope that she finds hers. My friends made the hike/ journey better. I see that with you her journey is lighter already.

    Let me know if I can support her in any way.

  8. Mia, your words about the mountain range are so helpful. They make me remember my own seasons of enormous challenge and feel less scandalized by the ups and downs that kept coming.

    Your story is so inspiring and I’m floored by the strength that you show can come through this un-wished-for path.

  9. All my friends are here.

  10. Karen, as I wrote to you earlier, I groan with you and them. There is such beauty that emerges from challenge and darkness but oh, how I don’t wish this challenge on anyone!
